a little mud...

Happy New Year every one!

How about a little humor to start the year out?

 Little Mr. Doodles here was riding his trike when he decided to take a little shortcut. He cut the corner and found himself stuck in the mud... When he got off his trike, he did a fabulous butt plant in the super squishy mud.  He really didn't want his photo taken, but his mom couldn't resist snapping a few. =)

The sign post was cut out of grunge paper on my Cricut. I wasn't so sure exactly how well it would really work, but it cut beautifully!  A little ink and embossing powder gives it texture and color.  I typed up the journaling and printed it on a transparency and layered in between the layers of grunge paper. 

Ok, between the wind and the rain outside, I've had some light flickering... Guess I should hop off the computer for a while. =)
